Bart came into SNAFU Rescue after being purchased at a commercial breeder dog auction. Thanks to the help of generous donors we were able to secure 19 dogs, now nicknamed the #ValentineOne9
Bart's foster family reports that he has been a great little foster pup! He is very playful and active Frenchie puppy. He seems to greatly enjoy snuggling, taking naps in between play times, being held, being anywhere his people are and following his people all around the house and yard! Some more of his favorite activities are chewing on bones, playing with his toys, running in the yard, watching TV with his people, and playing with the other dog in his foster home, especially his boxer foster sister - they really enjoy running, wrestling and playing! He would flourish if his adoptive home had a dog brother or sister for him to play with. From time to time, he also tries to engage the cats in play as well. If potential adopters have a cat, it needs to be dog savvy - if the cat runs he will chase thinking it's a fun game. Bart seems to love everyone he meets and even does very well with gentle children under supervision, but he should always supervised when he is around kids, to make sure both he and they are kept safe. Bart seems to be a smart boy who wants to please his people - he is responsive to many commands, does great with positive reinforecement and will do anything for a treat!
Bart is currently still working on potty training. He will require a regular and consistent schedule to help with his continued potty training in his new home. As with all of our dogs, any adopter will need to be able to and willing to continue working on potty training with him. He has also done great with crate training (after being bribed with a treat of course) and sleeps quietly in his kennel during the night or when his foster family happens to leave the home. For his safety, we recommend that he keep a similar crating schedule when his humans are away from the home and/or he is left unsupervised so he is safe and secure while no one is home. He does not know danger and must be protected when his humans are not able to supervise him.
Medically, Bart is in good health! He has been neutered, is UTD on all of his vaccinations/wormings, has been heartworm tested, is microchipped and been given the all clear for adoption by our veterinarian!
Bart would do well in almost any type of home but since he is still working on potty training and absolutely loves running and playing in his foster families backyard with the other dogs, a house with a fenced yard will be preferred for him (opposed to a multiple floor apartment style dwelling with no yard). He does very well with stairs and they do not phase him one bit! We also think he would love to go work with his new family if they wanted to take him with them to the office! He loves to meet new people! If his people are not able to take him to work with them, no problem – he is completely happy spending the day in his kennel as long as his people can arrange a mid day potty break for him!
If you feel like your family might be the perfect forever home for Bart please fill out an adoption application for him today!
NOTE: Please note that it will likely be at *least* a 3-4 week minimum before you hear back from us after submitting an adoption application. We typically accept for new applications for a period of 7 days or until 20 applications have been received for any newly available dog. After that time period, the applications are sent on to the foster family for review and that usually takes from at *least* a few days to a week to sort through the applications, etc. :-) Most of our dogs receive several applications so this process does take some time, especially on dogs who are more popular for one reason or another. We do require phone interviews to be conducted between the foster family and potential adopters, vet reference checks and a home visit to be conducted for all potential adopters, if they are selected as the top choice applicant, which will also take time to complete. That being said, we do always let our applicants know if they are chosen or not. :-)
IF you happen to not be chosen, please don't feel discouraged as, again, we usually get several applications for each dog, and sometimes it can be very difficult to choose just one adopter. In those cases, we usually offer to keep the applications for adoption on file for any future dogs that come into our rescue. :-)
ALL adopters are required to come and pick up their adopted dogs in person from the dog's foster home (we do not ship any of our dogs). Please have road/driving transport plans in place to pick up an adopted dog before you apply! While we are not against adopters flying a foster dog in cabin on a commercial flight, please keep in mind that many are not good candidates for flying due to size and/or being a brachycephalic/short nosed breed.
If an adopter can not keep one of our grads, for any reason at all, at ANY point in time, they *must* be willing and able to return their adopted dog to his/her original foster home, despite distance and any costs that would be required to do so.
